Color Throwdown Week 28


This weeks Color Throwdown is being hosted by Barbara Anders and her chosen colors are Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red, and Pirouette Pink and they are so lovely together!


The adorable lion image is from High Hopes. It's colored with Copics and I used the new GinaK pure luxury 120lb paper. It really does work wonderfully with the Copics. The background is a scrapblock from Cornish Heritage Farms. It's stamped on white cardstock and inked with Distress Inks in Antique Linen, Tea Dye, and Walnut Stain. The sentiment is Wild Thing from Verve Visual. The set has several great sentiments! The lace heart edge is a Martha Stewart border punch...her punches are awesome! I distressed the edges of every panel and inked them up and finished by adding few tiny enamel heart brads from Making Memories to the sentiment panel.

This is going to be my hubby's Valentines Day card..it's cute but no bows or fluffy stuff...so I think he can handle it!

Don't forget to check out all the girls wonderful designs here!
